Cucumber seedlings

Posted: 09/04/2013 at 09:14

Thanks guys, I sowed at my normal time but forgot about the pot in the airing cupboard for 2 days and in that time they had germinated and reached about 3 cms tall.  My own fault!  I shall continue to mollycoddle them until the warm weather arrives. 

Chilli, I thought I'd read somewhere about them hating damp stems so hence my question.

My cucumber seedlings are leggy because I left them in the airing cupboard to long.  When I pot them on could I bury some of the bear stalk?  It works for other plants such as tomatoes but would it work for cucumbers?  At £3.99 for 4 seeds I don't want to risk losing these seedlings.

What tree is this?

I don't think it is a tree but could be the climber Trachelosperum jasminoides.  Does it have white flowers?

Sweet pepper seed germination - epic failure!

I always put my peppers into the airing cupboard as it's really warm in there.  Peppers germinated in 4 days this year.  Make sure you cover the tray to prevent drying out and check daily.

Do you need to use a mower/strimmer near this lean to?  If you do there is always a risk of a stone being thrown up which could break the glass if it goes to ground level.

When you pot them on you can bury the stem upto the first seed leaves which will get rid of some of the legginess

Moving a Cotinus

Why not take cuttings and layer this year and then move next year when you have relacements if it dies.  Should be able to move it as you can prune them back hard so if you kept a decent rootball I would expect it to take in the new spot.
